Now that ----->

they are dropping film bodies and switching to digital.

Now that Ilford are in receivership (a sad day in photography as they were makers of the best B&W film) and proper B&W processing is through the roof, DSLRs are affordable and you can buy decent compact Digicams for next to nothing, I don't see any reason whatsoever why 35mm film has to exist anymore - it'll be just Medium format and Digital and even then, 6X4.5 is looking very shaky indeed..

When someone modded a camera to take cheap Cine film (which is what 35mm really is) they stumbled across something wonderful but it's about time the grainy format was laid to rest..
